A Bit About the Tuileries Garden Originally created in 1564 by Catherine de Medicis and stretching from the Louvre Museum to the Place de la Concorde in Paris, France, the Tuileries Garden became the city's first public park in 1667. It was designer Andre Le Notre who transformed the Tuileries from an outdoor museum for the royalty of France into a French formal garden for Louis XIV.

"The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden" Exploring the art, design and evolution of the Tuileries Garden, this special exhibit features 100 paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures by some of the most famous American and European artists from the 17th to the 20th century. The exhibit also examines the impact that the Tuileries Garden had on many artists such as Childe Hassam and Camille Pissaro.

Admission to "The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden" exhibit is $8.50 for adults and $5.50 for seniors (65+) and students.
